Learn to Speak K-lish, Lesson 1

Cavebaby K's Cute Words and Phrases

*beware there is a TON of inappropriately used punctuation (let's not forget the terrible grammar) in this post...I'm sorry for making my friend Molly blind with the horror of it all, she's a college English instructor. I, obviously, am not.

Me (or My) Nenoll--I'm Kendall--introducing herself to anyone and everyone who'll listen, often when i'll say "good morning beauty" she'll say 'no me Nenoll'

Meen Up--Clean Up--as in 'meen up meen up ewybudy ewyweh' (Barney song) or 'meen up me mom durtee' if she's sticky/dirty/sees the wipes or the bathtub

Cuk--Stuck--as in 'mama cuk me' when her foot/arm/head/toy/diaper is stuck somewhere

Nyde Wood--Nice Word--instead of her saying "please" or "thank you" or using her "nice words" as we tell her, she says, 'nyde wood mom more baba!'

PatPat--Pat Pat the Rocket/Little Einsteins TV Show--as in 'mama PatPat?' first thing in the morning

Nah Woody--Not Working--as in 'my baba's nah woody' [nipple is plugged]

Opie--Open--no she doesn't watch The Andy Griffith Show, as in 'opie [insert anything here]' mostly pertaining to objects that cannot be opened

Wee--Slide/Swing/Playground Equipment--as in 'mama go skoo wee' [go to the school, pick up the kids and play on the playground]

Buttol--Buckle--on the carseat or stroller, 'mama my buttol yay mommy' (!)

Mohn--Phone--as the phone rings...'uh oh mohn' [runs to get it and says 'hi Yaya' everytime]

Ohmert--Homework--as in 'my ohmert' [when DQ and My Boy are doing theirs, she has crayons and paper or her big Elmo coloring book]

Got it? There's going to be a test you know, I hope you're taking notes. One of these days I'll video K during her semi-coherent story telling and YOU will have to try and decipher what she's saying.

    Toooooooo cute!!

    I miss these little toddlerisms (not the behaviors. just the words) Punkinhead used to say he wanted his nigh-nigh (blankie) and that he wanted cha-cha meeelk (chocolate milk) - that one was always accompanied by a cute little tushie cha-cha too.
